Common-law couple Orwin DeCinto and Carlotta Rice were earlier this week arraigned before Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly charged with assaulting each other; and they each denied the charge when it was read to them.The court heard that on August 5, 2018, while at their Albouystown residence, they assaulted each other with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.According to the prosecution’s facts, on the day in question, at about 19:00h, DeCinto was conversing with a friend when he became embroiled in an argument with Rice over an issue that occurred earlier that day. In the course of the argument, Rice allegedly became annoyed and tore down DeCinto’s shirt before attacking him with an object, causing him to receive injuries to his right wrist. They each eventually ended up assaulting the other so as to cause grievous bodily harm. The Police prosecutor did not object to either defendant being placed on bail, thus Magistrate Daly placed DeCinto on $10,000 bail and Rice on $40,000 bail.The matter will be tried in September.

Notably however, this newspaper understands that the event themed “PNCR – Vanguard of a Green Economy,” was reminiscent to the 1970’s as senior public servants were insisted upon to attend the event. According an upset senior Government official, the event was déjà vu to the Forbs Burnham era where public servants, despite displeasure, were forced to attend the PNC’s general council meetings.Meanwhile, at the event at President David Granger, assured the Council the PNC is committed to the coalition Government.“The PNCR is committed to coalition politics; we are better to together.”Focusing attention on the family, the President said that that society was founded on the family, that the family was sacrosanct and urged Party members to protect and preserve the family.He noted also that regions must focus on education and it was imperative that employment be found for the young people of Guyana. “Despite the challenges, we have to find employment for the young people of Guyana. We have to develop the village economies; we have to start producing things at the village level.” The Leader asked village leaders to take rebuilding the village economy seriously and pledged government support for such initiatives.The PNCR Leader speaking to the Diaspora, he said that “the Diaspora is vital to the PNC; it is a vital component. I trust the Diaspora and I believe in the Diaspora.”Following the formal opening, plenary sessions examined the Party Leader’s address, the General Secretary’s Report and plans for the Party’s 60th anniversary. A Motion giving full support to the Government in the action that was taken to retake the Red House, a National Heritage building was presented to General Council by the Vice Chairperson of the National Congress of Women, (NCW), Carol Smith-Joseph.General Council is the second highest decision making forum of the PNCR.
15 September 2015This week, all South Africans with a valid identification document can enjoy free access to most of the country’s national parks during the 10th annual South African National Parks (SANParks) Week. The week runs from 14 to 20 September.This initiative, a partnership between First National Bank and Total South Africa, was opened by Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa, with the theme “Know Your National Parks”. It was launched at Marakele National Park in Limpopo.National Parks Week was set up following the realisation that the majority of South Africa’s citizens were not visiting the country’s wildlife reserves, according to Fundisile Mketeni, the chief executive officer of SANParks. The reason for the week, Mketeni said, was to cultivate a culture of pride in all South Africans.“SANParks started this campaign to encourage all South Africans, especially those from the communities around the parks, to share in what SANParks envisions to be ‘the pride and joy of all South Africans and the world,’” he said.Source: SANparks
Even as the last rites of Varsha Bhosle, daughter of playback singer Asha Bhosle, were performed on Tuesday, police remained clueless about the reasons behind her suicide.Police officers investigating the case said they would record statements of Asha, who might be able to reveal the reason behind her 56-year-old daughter’s suicide.A police official said they had recorded statements of Asha’s sister Usha Mangeshkar, maid Dipali Mane and driver Vijay. “Close family members have not been questioned yet since they are still in a state of shock,” the police official said.The officer said police would soon record the statements of Asha, her elder sister and legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and Varsha’s former husband Hemant Kenkre. Police officials, however, said the Belgian pistol, with which Varsha allegedly killed herself, was registered in the name of Anand, Asha’s youngest son and it was kept safely in the house.On Monday, Varsha was found dead with two bullet injuries in her head. She was the second of the three children of Asha and Ganpatrao Bhosle and stayed mostly with her mother in the posh Prabhu Kunj building at Pedder Road in Mumbai.Police suspect that she committed suicide Sunday night, but also said that the neighbours did not hear any gunshot. Varsha’s viscera sample has been sent for test. Police sources said the woman’s post-mortem report confirmed she died of haemorrhagic shock due to bullet injuries.Three loaded cartridges were found in the pistol. Varsha, who used to work as a freelance journalist, was divorced from sports journalist Hemant Kenkre. She had also sung songs for some Hindi and Marathi films and performed in some concerts with her mother.She was depressed for many years and had tried to commit suicide in 2008 and 2010 by consuming sleeping pills. advertisement
New Delhi: Four power producers, including Jindal Power and JSW Energy, are set to supply 1,000 MW power collectively to three south Indian states at a tariff of Rs 4.41 per unit for short-term under a pilot scheme to bring back stressed power assets on stream. Under Pilot Scheme-II of Ministry of Power, Jindal Power would supply 315 MW, followed by Korba West Power Company (295 MW), JSW Energy (290 MW), Essar Power M P Ltd (100 MW). NHPC was appointed an aggregator by PFC Consultancy through e-tendering for Pilot Scheme-II. “NHPC has got confirmation from three south Indian states for signing short-term (for 3 years) power purchase agreements (PPAs) for supply of 1,000 MW. Therefore, the letters of award have been issued to four companies — Jindal Power, Korba West Power Company, JSW Energy and Essar Power M P Ltd — for supply of 1,000 MW collectively,” a source said. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe PPAs for supply of 1,000 MW to three states are expected to be signed in a month, the source said. State-owned hydro power giant NHPC is the aggregator for tying up 2,500 MW power under the scheme. “NHPC is in advance stages of negotiations with other states in the country for tying up for remaining 1,500 MW of power through coal-fired power plants. The PPA could be inked in a month after states’ confirmation,” the source said. The objective of the scheme is to facilitate procurement of power for three years from coal-based power plants that are already commissioned, but do not have PPAs. Since a PPA is a prerequisite for getting coal linkage, these plants are under stress.

In October 2018, PTC India, as an aggregator, had finalised supply of 1,900 MW capacity under the first such scheme at a tariff of Rs 4.24 per unit and PPAs were signed on October 29, 2019. RKM Powergen (550 MW), Jhabua Power Ltd (100 MW), MB Power Ltd (175 MW), SKS Power (300 MW), Jindal India Thermal Power Ltd (125 MW), IL&FS Energy (550 MW) and JP Nigrie (100 MW) were the successful bidders under Scheme-I.
